Hi Randy,

Take a look at the "hardware" section in the Wiki link below.  The two steps are to create a symbolic link to the device file, so Wine knows where the ports are, and the registry entries which fill in entries in a Windows API that APRSIS32 uses to enumerate the Com ports for the configuration screen.   The second step is often missed, and will prevent APRSIS32 from showing the ports.

Good luck,

Greg KO6TH
